i have had this issue for a year now, with no end in sight. my interface language on my entire computer is english. everything english. the keyboard is a german keyboard because i bought my machine where i live, in austria. but my written language and all dictionaries are english. same with my preferences in firefox, english everywhere. but for some reason the language constantly switches back and forth between german and english. look at the video, it's insane. i've uninstalled and started over. i've wiped the entire computer and installed EVERYTHING fresh. no change. when i install and use firefox, it comes back. it only happens in firefox. argh. screen capture of the language switching: https://youtu.be/gq8hXs5pXm0

Does Firefox manage the priority of processes in Windows 10 ?

As Firefox often responds slow to my actions on my Compaq Presario CQ5303NL I have tried solving this by raising the priority of some of the 8 to 10 firefox.exe processes from Normal to High (with 3 Firefox windows and about 20 tabs open). This is done with the Task Manager. However the last month every 10 to 20 minutes the priority settings are reversed and about four firefox.exe processes are then set to Low priority at regular time intervals. This also seems to result in slow response to mouseclicks. Are you aware of this phenomenon? Is this something Firefox does by itself, or is this intervention coming from Windows 10. I notice that when I put explorer.exe in high priority, this lasts till shutdown of the computer, as with other manageble processes.

This is not a serious problem. It's more questioning what Windows is doing with Firefox. (memory is 6GB)

Using Options>Colors>I changed the background to "Black" and left the font "White", which was the default. I wanted ONLY the BLANK homepage black. I have a dark theme made by MaDonna. Immediately something altered, FF blinked (so to speak) and next ALL pages are a black background, including ALL webpages. Using FF instructions, I got back to a white blank homepage, but all the webpages have remained black. I've tried every combination (shown on your instruction page) to get back to a "white" background on the webpages. The "Always," "Never," only on ?? themes, clearing cache, returning to defaults, & I can still change the BLANK HOMEPAGE to either black or white, but nothing changes the webpages back to their normal views - white backgrounds. The only thing I haven't done is remove all cookies, because I truly do not want to do that.

Whenever I restart my computer (occurs at least once a day), I need to login to my Firefox account. This allows my bookmarks and saved logins to populate.

Whenever I login, I receive an email stating "New sign-in to Firefox" even though I am always logging in from the same device. Under my profile's list of devices, it lists the one device several times.

Is this intended behaviour, or is there a way for Firefox to at least recognize that my current device is the same as the one I logged into before?

Mozilla Support doesn't save my Firefox Account (Mozilla Support) email and password on the 'Logins & Passwords' page. I don't like that. I know that the Firefox Account isn't the same thing as the 'Sign in to Firefox' account in the browser, which is good because I don't want to 'Sign in to Firefox'. But it bothers me that the browser is saving my Firefox Account (Mozilla Support) password and email somewhere that isn't the 'Logins & Passwords' page. Please fix/change this behavior.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04.3 and firefox 71.0

My problem is that I also use roboform which doesn't really like ubuntu too much. I understand that roboform tries to change my settings for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites". The strange thing is that it doesn't do this all the time. This morning, for instance, I turned my machine on and went to preferences to make sure it was checked and it was already set. This is strange as its sometimes set and sometimes not set. The reason I need it set all the time is that roboform also works sometimes and sometimes not. Between the two its all just a genuine pain in the ***.

My question is simple. Is there a setting that will force this to be on all the time? (maybe in about:config?) Can I add something in about:config to do the job? My other solution is just change password managers. That is, probably, the real solution but I am too stubborn I think.

Thank you................

My Tabs toolbar used to be under my Links toolbar. It is now above the Address toolbar.

How do I put my Tabs toolbar back where I want it (not where Firefox arbitrarily decided to put it)?

Alternately, How do I go back to FireFox 70.0.1?

System: Windows 8.1, 64-bit

              FireFox 71, 64-bit 

Note: My laptop (Windows 8.1, 64-bit) has Firefox 70.0.1 (but wants me to "update" (sic)). It has the tool bars in my preferred order. I'm not about to "update" until I know how to fix FireFox 71.

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

In Outlook for Office 365 if I click to view an email in a web browser, it opens in Internet Explorer 11 or Microsoft Edge, neither of which I want to use. I haven't found any way of changing the default to Firefox. In the Office file association wizard I ought to be able to associate the file types .mht, .mhtml, .url etc with Firefox but my options seem to be locked down within Windows 10 Home. 'Choose where to get apps' is set to 'anywhere' but I'm forced towards the MS Store where Firefox is not acknowledged as an app. Surely I can solve this without having to switch to Windows 10 Pro? Grateful for all help.
